NAS JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - This week for FCN's "Salute to Service" we are recognizing Culinary Specialist Service Warfare 1st Class Marnika Ash.
She joined the Navy with her sister in 2006. Marnika says she was recruited right out of the culinary specialist program in her high school. She was nominated for our "Salute to Service" because she was an important part in helping NAS Jacksonville get its five star accreditation for its dining facility.
Her commanding officer and team also say she has an incredibly positive attitude.
"Our jobs as sailors are very stressful, some people may have good days while others have bad days. If we look at the positive aspect of things it makes everyone a little bit more happy and it makes things a little bit more smooth," Marnika said.
She and the culinary team at NAS Jacksonville feed hundreds of sailors each day. So congratulations to Marnika and thank you for your service!
